Watford – Liverpool. Editors’ prediction
The Bookmaker Ratings journalist and tipster Pavel Krombet is giving his view on the #BPL game between Watford and Liverpool.
Watford (6.86 on WhoScored) are now on fire playing with confidence like they did last year in the Championship. Yes, the confidence is their main power. Quique Sanchez Flores knows how to line up the team with good morale. And he knows how to set tournament tasks. Watford have got three wins and two loses in the last five games. Some will say that nine points were got from weak teams, but it’s not correct. Aston Villa are fighting in each game, Norwich are not bad and they have showed that vs Arsenal and Everton, and Sunderland are always tough with the Big Sam Allardyce. There are no outsiders in the #BPL now so all clubs can win and lose.
Watford are good in team work and they have a clear plan in each game and for a whole season – we can see that. And they are progressing. In the first eight games they’ve got 10 points with -1 (6-7) goals difference. In the next eight games they’ve got 15 points with +3 (12-9) goals difference. Allan Nyon, Etienne Capoue and Odion Ighalo are the essential elements of the team and they’ve brought Watfort to the seventh place in the league. At home Watford got 11 points from the possible 24. Joel Ekstrand and Tom Hoban (not in the starting line-up) are injured, Valon Behrami and Sebastian Prodl are doubtful.
Jurgen Klopp rocks the stands of Anfield. Liverpool need some courage to overcome the lack of team work. But they need points right now. They are nineth in the league and mix awesome games (vs Manchester City 4:1) with poor games (vs Newcastle United 0:2). They’ve got two wins, two loses and one draw in the last five games. Their defence play nervously and their attack fully depends on the form of Phillipe Coutinho who is now playing not so brilliant. In away games Liverpool have got 12 points of possible 24. Joe Gomes, Dejan Lovren, Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge are injured.
Watford look better but it’s too risky to bet on their win. I suggest to bet on double chance – Watford win or draw. Analytics from Betegy consider Watford’s chances on win or draw as 63%. So we can expect that – at 1.85 with Ladbrokes.
